- We may share information about you with other members of our group of companies and shareholders so that we can best manage the services your organisation is providing to us across our group. They are bound to keep your information in accordance with this notice.
- We may also share your information with certain contractors or service providers and they may process your personal data for us. They are always required to meet our standards on processing information and security. The information we provide them, including your information, will only be provided in connection with the performance of their function.
- If we're discussing selling or transferring part or all of our business, the information may be transferred to our professional advisers, the prospective purchasers and their professional advisers under suitable terms as to confidentiality – or if sold, to buyers who can continue our business.

Where your information will be held
When we share your information, your information may be transferred outside the European Union. We will only transfer data to jurisdictions outside the scope of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) where the appropriate safeguards required by the GDPR are in place.
We may store our information on cloud servers located in the USA, or engage vendors which do not always have equivalent data protection laws to those applicable in Europe. The transfer of this information is therefore governed by a contract including standard contractual clauses (SCCs) approved by the European Commission.
You may have certain rights in relation to your information including a right to access or to correct the information we hold about you. Some of these rights will only apply in certain circumstances however, such as the right to be forgotten or the right to request that we move your information to another company. They will generally not be available if there are outstanding contracts between us, if you continue to be employed as a contractor on one of our sites, if we are required by law to keep the information or if the information is relevant to a legal dispute. If you would like to exercise, or discuss, any of these rights, please contact our Data Protection Officer at email@example.com or 90 Whitfield Street, London, W1T 4EZ.
- You can remove consent, where you have provided it, at any time, as well as update any of your opt-in marketing preferences by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or a letter to 90 Whitfield Street, London, W1T 4EZ.
